God provided in an unusual way. The summer following college graduation, while preparing for seminary, I worked as children’s minister. God would challenge me in the coming years to learn to trust Him financially step by step. He created an experience that summer to prove Himself faithful and teach me that I could trust Him to provide for my present and future needs.
Later, feeling foolish and questioning my experience, I went to church and walked into my office. Stan, the custodian, came in and presented an envelope. I asked, “Who is this from?” He answered, “I don’t know.” I said, “What do you mean, you don’t know?” He replied, “That’s what they told me to tell you, I don’t know.” Stan left, and I opened the envelope.
